This presentation shares the case studies of using a meaningful Mobile App game and explores the process of making, wRiteFormula, to help beginner Chemistry students master ionic bonding nomenclature with less arduous memory work through gamification, timely feedback, and principles of discovery-learning in a social context. Impactful case studies and findings will be shared by project schools, on how they have successfully integrated the Mobile App game in their student-centred classrooms, with high levels of motivation and engagement observed, and learning gains attained.

Chemistry nomenclature is important as it provides a method for identifying chemical substances clearly and systematically, thus facilitating communication. However, beginner secondary school students often find nomenclature rules complicated, confusing and uninteresting, and are unmotivated to practise using these rules effectively and efficiently, thus hindering their progress in learning chemistry as they can neither communicate clearly nor ask productive questions.

The game was developed with funding from the National Research Foundation, Singapore, and is jointly managed by the Educational Technology Division, Ministry of Education, Singapore and the National Institute of Education, Singapore.
